Trouble & Bass member The Captain rounds out 2011 with part II of his three part mix series that features The Dream tracks.
“Some of you may know, I’m a big fan of R&B, but a huge fan of The Dream and love all his work. So I decided I wanted to do a mix of everything he’s done, after compiling a good amount of songs he’s produced, sang on, Remixed, etc, I realized I had so much of his work that I decided to turn this into a 3 part mix. Each mix will each be a little different, but much alike all The Dream’s tune, the main theme is always Love. Here’s Part I.”

We’re in Miami and this party tonight with Trouble & Bass looks set to be one of the biggest parties of the whole week.
Saturday March 26, During Ultra Music Week, the dark powers of the bass occult will be unleashed upon downtown Miami…Trouble & Bass team up with Miami’s Overthrow crew to unleash a blend of international havoc in the one and only Overthrow castle! That’s right, this is all going down in a castle!
Here’s some music including a brand new dj-mix from Drop The Lime to tickle your taste buds before the party.
Full details after the jump.
The Trouble & Bass crew out of NYC have gone from strength to strength during the last two years. They happen to be one of our favorite dj crews and now they’re about to follow in our footsteps with the latest edition of the Scion compilation CD series. This is the 25th edition and it’s packed to the brim with some of their heavy bass induced gems which we’ve all grown to love. We just received this spectacular promo mix that will show you exactly what Trouble & Bass are all about.
“Scion has partnered with Brooklyn-based label Trouble & Bass for the latest installment in the Scion CD Sampler Series. What is Trouble & Bass? Trouble happens every time the Brooklyn-based crew of Drop The Lime, AC Slater, Star Eyes and The Captain get together to throw legendary dance music events. Bass is everything, whether the backbone of releases on the Trouble & Bass label or the driving force of the ballistic, sweat-inducing DJ sets â€“ all timeless rhythms, unforgettable melodies, and surprise after speaker-quaking surprise. If youâ€™ve been missing the raw energy that made electronic music so exciting in the first place, this is where itâ€™s been hiding. Trouble & Bass crew are the DJs who are defining a new New York sound and sharing it worldwide. Riot inciter Drop The Lime, formed the Voltron-like T&B a mere two years ago, but already theyâ€™ve earned kudos the world over!”
BONUS: Here are two of the tracks off the compilation. AC Slater with the dubsteppy, chainsaw bass wielding “Calm Down” and Trouble & Bass head honcho Drop The Lime with the fantastic “Tabac Theme”.
Tracklist for the mix and tourdates will follow after the jump.
Mishka who really spoiled us this last year with their solid mixtape series. The seventh installment features Star Eyes, The Captain and Drop the Lime from Trouble & Bass and they provides us with a collection of the latest heavy rave anthems. Get retarded ya’ll!!!
This Mishka collabo with Trouble and Bass seems only logic since Luca aka DTL is one of the cover faces for Mishka and both the T&B label and Mishka is Brooklyn based.
“Trouble & Bass is the sound of staying up all night and getting wild in the streets, sweat dripping off the walls and speakers pounding in your face. For the last four years, T&B has brought raw energy back to dancefloors worldwide by effortlessly flipping bass music in all its forms. The crew is full of surprises, taking influences from house, electro, dubstep, drum & bass, metal and hip-hop to form an entirely new genre simply known as â€œheavy bass.â€”

The mighty Trouble & Bass crew (Drop The Lime, The Captain, Star Eyes & Math Head) will take the jump across the Atlantic to London tomorrow for an apperance at Night Slugs (run by our homie Alex Bok Bok). The night will serve as a launch party for the fantastic new Drop The Lime single “Hear Me” and it will most likely be insane. Those of you in London should try to hit this but those of us unfortunate not be able to make it to this will have to listen to these tracks + mixes while imaging being liquored up and feeling that bass pound against our bodies.
First out is this tune by L-Vis 1990:
Then we have a Bok Bok tune from the start of 08 that never saw the light of day:
Then we have this brand new Drop The Lime mix on which Luca sings and everything:
Last but not least a Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 back to back effort from the Night Slugs show on Sub FM last week.
“Lots of dubplates, UK house and deep vocal flavas on this one as well as our usual heavyeight bassline selection (though less of that and more of the percussive shit) – definitely a showcase of how we’re sounding at the moment!”
